Over the past several years, I've collected a handful of reference letters from both professional supervisors as well as academic professors. These individuals have been kind enough to allow me to share their reference letters here. These letters, as well as a brief bio of their respective author and some context of the letter, are posted here for convenience. More specific information about many of the positions described in these letters can be found under the "Work" tab.

Stephen Bailey - Deep Space Systems

Following an impressive aerospace career with companies such as NASA and Lockheed Martin, Steve Bailey became the founder and president of Deep Space Systems in Littleton, CO. It was a tremendously educational experience for me to work under such a knowledgable and experienced individual during an internship position.

Joesph Ruder - HollyFrontier

Joe is the Director of Capital Projects at the HollyFrontier Cheyenne refinery and he served as my supervisor during my internship at HollyFrontier. Joe provided a superior internship experience that I presume most interns will never know. I will forever attribute many of the first lessons I learned about "real-world engineering" to my experiences during this internship, and I am very grateful for Joe's part in affording me with this outstanding opportunity.

Brian Shreck & Susan Stoddard - UW McNair Scholars Program

Brian and Susan are the Project Director and Assistant Director for the McNair Scholars Program at the University of Wyoming. They are truly some of the kindest and most supportive people I have worked with during my time at UW. They were responsible for both hiring me and supervising me while I acted as the GRE Math Instructor for the McNair Program and I thank them both for selecting me for a rewarding teaching opportunity that many engineering students will never know.

Jeffrey Anderson - University of Wyoming

Dr. Anderson is an Assistant Academic Professional Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Wyoming. He was an outstanding professor for some of my key engineering courses including Dynamics and Mechatronics. More notably, he was the professor of the Engineering Experimentation course that I had the privilege to be a Teaching Assistant for as an undergraduate student. Note: The original context of this letter was part of a graduate program application.

LuLing Osofsky - University of Wyoming

LuLing was the instructor for my undergraduate level Technical Writing course at UW and has since entered a PhD program at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I strongly believe that effective technical writing is one of the most important skills a good engineer can possess and I therefore consider myself extremely lucky to have had such a caring and knowledgeable instructor for this course. Note: The original context of this letter was part of a graduate program application.
